This year hasn’t been a very exciting one for Microgaming slots fans so far. The Isle of Man developer didn’t release any truly exciting games in 2016 – most of its games were mediocre at best. But things seem to change in the coming days and weeks, with fans finally getting their money’s worth toward the end of the year. There are two Microgaming titles that we can especially be excited about this year, and one of them is set to be released within days.
Jungle Jim: El Dorado
Jungle Jim: El Dorado was announced early this summer, but there were no details about it available anywhere. Now, that the summer is over, the time finally comes for it to hit the Europalace online casino – and it looks like a great game to be waiting for. Similar to another game by another successful developer, the game will involve an explorer roaming through the South American jungle, seeking out (liberating) hidden treasures in the process.
Euro Palace players will have the chance to join Jungle Jim, an Indiana Jones minus the hat (most of the times), on his quest to discover the ancient City of Gold hidden in the jungle. The reels of the game will be filled with gems, treasure chests, and other valuables, waiting to be turned into cash. As you might expect, the symbols involved in a winning combination will disappear (Rolling Reels), allowing others to fall into their place for further wins. The game will have 5 reels, 3 rows, 25 win lines, free spins, multipliers, and tons of gold.
Players at the Euro Palace were genuinely excited when Microgaming announced its Jurassic Park video slot machine back in 2014. And the game didn’t fail to deliver: when it was finally released, it has proven every bit as great as it was expected to be. This year (or maybe the next, who knows) gives Euro Palace players another game to be excited about – a sequel to the Jurassic Park slot machine, based on the sequel to the Jurassic Park movie: Jurassic World.
Microgaming has announced its licensing agreement with Universal Brand Development back in February. Under the deal, the Isle of Man based software developer agreed to develop a video slot machine based on the movie with the second biggest opening weekend in Hollywood history. While no details about the game are to be known – not about the format, not about the release timeline – we can anticipate it to be similar to the Jurassic Park slot machine (which has been appreciated by the industry and the players alike) both in mechanics and looks. The game will be released either late this year or early in the next.
